Jackson’s Babby

From the Gunn MS Fermanagh 1865, one of many Jackson tunes to be found there. I play this after Jackson’s Coagy.
The opening is reminiscent of The (Irish) Washerwoman, a tune also reputedly composed by Jackson.
Versions of this tune from other MSs include: The Rake’s March (Goodman), Lanamacree (Grier) and Tanning the Leather (Rice-Walsh).
